“Welcome To My House” is an interesting and

students to use plenty of adjectives that involve their senses, to help
describe what a visitor might see, hear, taste and smell, as they enter their

Students who don’t celebrate Christmas, can simply write a “Welcome to my home” for another celebration or holiday. Older students can type their final draft.
If you do a Christmas Around the World
theme, students can choose a country and welcome visitors to their
home in France, Sweden, Mexico etc. as they write from that point of
view. Completed projects make a lovely bulletin board.
